The first half of the day was spent getting to the village where we will be staying for the next 2 weeks. 2 hours by train from Guiyang to Kaili, and then an hour by car to Xijang. A quick lunch of local noodles and then another hour further up into the hills to the small village where we will be teaching.
We were welcomed by the head of the village and introduced to 4 of the girls we will be teaching. A short introduction was all we had time for and a quick photo outside the small school which the village has allowed us to use. One of the girls requested if her friends could join so it looks like our class will be larger than we expected, which is great! Our plan for tomorrow is simple introductions and starting to build confidence in using English. If everything works out, video intros online tomorrow!
